I’m still riding my marathon high from Sunday so I’m taking a bit of time to think about some other exciting local events we have on the horizon. I wanted to share the following registration discounts and ta-daa, even a giveaway with you!
GIVEAWAY: Ambleside Mile – June 7, 2014
The Ambleside Mile is the oldest mile road race in British Columbia and is a much-anticipated part of the annual Community Day Parade. Runners and walkers alike are welcome to join the Ambleside Mile and be a part of this unique road running event that spans a one mile loop of the scenic downtown/Ambleside area.
The kind folks at Ambleside Mile have given me two free race entries to giveaway and I can’t wait to pass them along to you! All you have to do to enter is leave me a comment telling me what distance(s) you usually race and why you want to try the Ambleside Mile! Additional entries given for tweeting a link to this giveaway. Winner will be chosen randomly and notified on Wednesday, May 14. Good luck!
For more information about this event or to register or volunteer, visit the Ambleside Mile website.
DISCOUNT: 5 Peaks Trail Race, Golden Ears – May 10, 2014
I’m really looking forward to my first 5 Peaks trail race of the season and it’s coming up this Saturday at Golden Ears Park in Maple Ridge! I am really excited that so many friends are already signed up to volunteer or race this event. This lovely trail community that my ‘hardcore’ friends have always been a part of is starting to feel a little bit more like home to me.
Anyhow, Golden Ears is fast approaching and with no race day registration, everyone needs to make sure that they register online by midnight on May 7! There were some fantastic discounts at the Vancouver Marathon expo but if you missed those you can still get $5 off by using code 5PEAKSROCKS. Don’t forget Salomon will be there with trail shoes you can test drive for the race and every runner gets a free Buff!
To find more information, register or volunteer visit the 5 Peaks website.
DISCOUNT: Rock n Roll Vancouver Half Marathon & Cunningham Seawall 10k – October 26, 2014
You may have seen some of my fellow Rock Bloggers displaying their discount codes proudly today and that’s because we’re all pretty excited to be able to help everyone save a few bucks when registering for this awesome event. I am so excited to have Rock n Roll come to our lovely Vancouver for the very first time and hope you already have or are thinking about registering to join me this October!
The procedure is simple, use the following discount codes to save $10 off your RnRVAN half marathon entry or $5 off your Cunningham Seawall 10k entry.

I hope you’ll enter my Ambleside Mile giveaway or be able to use either of this discount codes. There are a lot of other discounts floating around for Vancouver area events so let me know if there’s one you’re interested in, I might be able to help you out!
